Southern Company And PGA TOUR Present 2013 Payne Stewart Award To Peter Jacobsen

ATLANTA, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Company and the PGA TOUR today recognized Peter Jacobsen as the recipient of the 2013 Payne Stewart Award. Jacobsen was honored in a ceremony at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta.

The Payne Stewart Award is presented annually to a professional golfer who best exemplifies the principles of character, charity and sportsmanship. The past winners have all distinguished themselves through their respect for the game, the TOUR's tradition of charity and their ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

" Payne Stewart was a true champion both on and off the golf course," said Southern Company Chairman, President and CEO Thomas A. Fanning. "The foundations of the Payne Stewart Award are the very same principles we have built our business on. We are proud to honor Peter Jacobsen as the worthy recipient of this award."

The award honors the memory of Payne Stewart, an 11-time winner on the PGA TOUR and World Golf Hall of Fame member who died tragically the week of the TOUR Championship in 1999. Southern Company, the "Official Energy Company of the PGA TOUR and the Champions Tour," was the TOUR Championship sponsor the year of Stewart's passing. The PGA TOUR created the Payne Stewart Award in his honor, and Southern Company has supported the annual presentation since its inception.

Jacobsen, 59, made his PGA TOUR debut in 1977 and has won seven times during his career. Jacobsen also collected 10 other victories, participated on four national teams and has won twice on the Champions Tour. Jacobsen's most successful year on TOUR came in 1995, when he brought home two PGA TOUR victories and represented the USA in both the Ryder Cup and the Dunhill Cup. Jacobsen served as a player director on the PGA TOUR Policy Board in 1983, 1985, 1992 and 1994.

Jacobsen's impact in the golf world has been felt outside the ropes as well. He started his work as a golf commentator for ABC-TV, covering the Skins Game throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s. He covered the 1991 Ryder Cup matches for NBC Sports and, in 2011, joined its golf broadcast team. He was also featured in two shows on the Golf Channel for three seasons each: "Peter and Friends" and "Peter Jacobsen Plugged In."
